Johannesburg - Three school children, aged between 16 and 18, were arrested on Wednesday for vandalism and public violence at a Botshabelo school, Free State police said.

"Police received information that pupils of Khoroyathuto high school at D section have damaged the school," Constable Consolation Mokoale said.

"On their arrival they found five cars, belonging to the teachers, damaged, the windows were broken."

On Tuesday the provincial education department and the school management had a meeting where they decided about the year mark system to be implemented, she said.

They wanted to view how pupils performed last year and those who qualified to be promoted.

"It is alleged that educators implemented the plan, but some of the learners were not satisfied. They wanted to be promoted automatically regardless of their results and that is where the problem started," Mokoale said.

"Some pupils allegedly started to throw stones at the educators' vehicles and some of the school windows were damaged. They also barricaded the school gates and the roads."

The three were expected to appear in the Botshabelo Magistrate's Court on January 28 on charges of malicious damage to property and public violence.

    This action smells of apartheid and being previously disadvantaged should automatically be sent up to the next grade. When in maybe 10 years there will be place for these idiots to fill in for members of parliment who have been pensioned off because of HIV/AIDS.

    @ Disadvantaged past????? These guys are between the ages of 16 and 18. They do not have a disadvantaged past. And if they do, then you must take it up with their parents who did not make use of the new laws, or who has not dissiplined their kids. Send them to juveline prison!

    Please note the difference between the comments here and on the Statue post. A fail is a fail and vandalism is vandalism. Make these louts work in the school toilets until they finish school doing plumbing repairs and cleaning the blocked toilets that theor own government do NOT repair but their parents tax money on Cokes and busfares and initiation parties etc.
